The Psychological Benefits of a Hair Transplant

What are the Psychological Benefits of a Hair Transplant?

As many great people have said in the past, “if you look good, you feel good”. In simpler terms, if you feel in your mind and hear that you look great this can have a huge impact on you having a good life.

Not always do we as humans feel confident in ourselves meaning an awkward look from someone in the street can have a big negative impact on how we feel for the day. This is the same for most people who get up in the morning and get ready for the daily grind. We brush our teeth, have a shower, and have a healthy breakfast which then leads onto brushing and grooming our hair. If our hair is starting to fall out, recede or you suffer from a hair condition such as Alopecia, this can set mood negatively for the day. However, you do not need to dismay as there are many psychological benefits of a hair transplant.

People who have experienced hair loss at an early age while involved in an active social life were more prone to the negative side effects of balding and appeared to benefit most from hair transplant procedures. With the boom of the Internet, such apps like Instagram focus heavily on how people look. This can lead to a whole host of problems for people suffering hair loss such as depression, anxiety, nervousness, lack of confidence and reclusiveness.

When a person has had a hair transplant or hair restoration procedure carried out, the psychological benefits of this will have a huge impact on the person. Studies have shown confidence is restored and other problems deteriorate over time. This being said my previous statement of “if you look good, you feel good” has a profound effect on a person’s wellbeing.

Considering that Alopecia (male-pattern baldness) affects up to 50% of men and 10% of women worldwide, we now know that a hair transplant can, in fact, improve the quality of life for someone suffering from male-pattern baldness.

Overall a hair transplant will not give you a whole new character but for many people suffering from such conditions from an early age need to reach out. There are many psychological benefits to having a hair transplant or hair restoration procedures. If you are unsure always speak to the specialists who are always on hand to support you with any questions or queries you may have.

Is being bald beautiful?

Is being bald beautiful?

Would you consider being bald beautiful?

Slowly losing your hair? Find that a comb-over styled hair isn’t covering the receding hairline like it once did? Is father time slowly catch-up and the thick and dark brown hair you once had slowly faded to grey and very thin? Is being bald beautiful? Finally, have you recently discovered you suffer from a condition such as alopecia?

You may find that you fit directly in one of those two questions. Receding and going grey seems to be a common factor for men as they get older to experience and can be seen as “this is supposed to happen”. With women, it can be a little bit more complicated as most women wouldn’t usually lose some much hair as they get older. However, with different conditions and hereditary factors, this may be the case that you start to lose your hair

As you may start to lose your hair you may begin to question what your next steps in your journey are. With our hair, we have confidence and more so with women. Our hair gives us style and somewhat an identity and when you lose this you lose your mojo or confidence you once had. Many people would begin to question what happens next. Some people would have several options open such as a transplant, hair wig or embrace being bald.

Many people would wonder whether it is really possible to get a hair transplant that could reverse, improve or mask an issue with your hair. A hair transplant is definitely something to consider and with companies such as UK Hair offer incredible finance packages as well advice and support, to ensure you are armed with all the facts before proceeding with any treatment.

One other option is to embrace your imperfections and remove any last remains of hair from your head. Being bald is beautiful. I agree that for men this decision is far easier however anyone should be able to enjoy their look whether this is with a hair transplant, wig replacement option or going completely bald. This all depends on how confident you are as a person but all options will give you a new lease of life. Embrace yourself and be confident in your own skin. Bald is beautiful.

Whichever option you decide for yourself make sure you have full confidence in your choice and consult expert advice such as coming to visit UK Hair Transplant Clinic. We can provide all the information you require to help you make your mind up.

We have collated a few facts about hair transplants to get you in the know of what to expect:

Can hair loss be slowed down?

The simplest of answers to the question yes. UK Hair Transplant Clinic recommends the use of clinically proven hair loss medication such as Finasteride (also known as Propecia) These times of medical drugs will not grow any new hair but scientific trials have shown that they can halt or slow down natural hair loss. The use of these products can also be a huge boost to a successful hair transplant.

Is a hair transplant the only cure for male pattern baldness?

A hair transplant is the main lasting remedy for male pattern baldness. The issue of diminishing hair influences most men sooner or later lose some or a lot of hair in their lifetime. As indicated by the National Institute for Health Care and Excellence, around 33% of white men younger than 30 are losing their hair – this increments to 80% by the age of 70. Rates of male pattern baldness are slower in dark and Asian culture.

What are the causes of male pattern baldness?

This unfortunately comes mainly does come down to genes and hereditary factors such as if your father or grandfather suffered from baldness. It isn’t all down to these types of genes as male grooming such as tieing your hair in a particular style such as a top knot, ponytail or excessive use of hair styling products such as wax and gels can all be contributory factors to male pattern baldness.

When will I notice any changes in my appearance?

Once the procedure has been completed, within around 6 to 8 weeks you will start to notice the hair transplant starting to take hold. Over the course of the next 3-6 months, you will notice the hair transplant getting stronger and thicker. This is always dependant on the type of treatment you have completed but if you speak to UK Hair Transplant Clinics we will always provide the best advice.

Could colouring your hair lead to hair loss?

Could colouring your hair lead to hair loss?

Could colouring your hair lead to hair loss?

For the last twenty or so years, we as a nation have become more focused on the way we look. From choosing the right outfit, the right accessories, the perfect makeup, skincare, hairstyle, etc. One common in home treatment many male and female people have used to improve their look is resulting in colouring your hair using hair dye treatments. Hair dyes are used mainly by people who are slightly older looking to banish the grey hair for a little later in life. One question does still remain, does colouring your hair lead to permanent hair loss?

Hair dying treatments can be purchased at local supermarkets or professionally applied to your hair via a salon specialing in these type of treatments. Hair sying became popular in the late ’90s and early ’00s giving people a way to change up their look. Hair dyes come in all colours, for all types of hair, for all lengths of hair, different reputable brands and so on. However this information may be, does use over the counter hair treatment cause temporary or in extreme case hair loss?

Hair dyes use chemical products contains both ammonia and hydrogen peroxide, which are very serious chemicals to by using on your skin or body. Before we look into the matter of hair loss these chemicals can cause burns if applied on broken or delicate skin, people with sensitive skin types and cause breathing difficulties. Based on these facts alone it cannot be unheard of that using hair dyes can damage or weaken hair follicles which over time can cause permanent hair loss. These chemicals do not stop the hair from growing but inhibit its ability to grow with strength making your hair easier to fall out gradually.

It is also recommended that even though hair treatments can be purchased over the counter at most pharmacies, you consult a hair stylist to complete the work on your behalf. By getting a professional to style your hair you can ensure the right products are used.

We would recommend that hair dyes are not used on s regular basis to prevent any permanent damage to your hair. If you find that your hair is thinning due to excessive use we would advise to stop using the treatments and discuss the next steps to improve your look. Whether it is to improve hair volume due to hair dye use, a complete transplant or discussions on how to improve your look we are always here to help.

How serious is Hair Loss in the UK?

How serious is Hair Loss in the UK?

Really how serious is Hair Loss in the UK?

Hair loss in the UK is more common than you think. Whether you are losing your hair due to getting older or have a serious condition such as alopecia. You will need to work out for yourself how serious your condition is before seeking help.

On average each day both men and women will lose up to 100 hairs per day naturally through normal daily tasks such as brushing or showering. It is normal for this amount of hair to fall out and naturally, our bodies will grow more hair than actually falls out so there shouldn’t be an immediate alarm.

There are many conditions will result in severe hair loss such as psoriasis, eczema or illnesses. Vitamin deficiencies can also be a huge trigger in loss of hair and looking after our bodies and hair is an important and key factor in making sure our locks stay healthy.

Mistreating your hair can be one of the main considerations of serious hair loss. If you are constantly overworking your hair with different treatments and styles such as dying your hair, straightening, backcombing, gel and product styling or aggressive brushing can lead to temporary or permanent hair loss.

 

8 Million Women in the UK experience Hair Loss

It is a staggering fact that over 8 million women in the UK alone suffer from hair loss according to the HNS. One of the leading contributors to this is a condition called alopecia which can lead to poor self-esteem and psychological problems.

 

Male Pattern baldness after half of all men in the UK

Male pattern baldness is a common condition which affects all men by age 50 and starts in the late twenties to thirties, according to the NHS. Male pattern baldness is a condition which is likely to develop a receding hairline or thinning around the crown of the head. In some cases, hair loss can lead to complete baldness of men. This condition is often a hereditary condition and a result or byproduct of the hormone testosterone.

 

Alopecia affects 2 in 1000 people in the UK

Alopecia is a condition which causes bald patterns around the size of two-pound coins to appear across the head. If the hair is able to grow back it will grow back fine and normal white and then return to its normal self. In more severe cases the hair loss can become permanent.

As you can see from the few facts above, hair loss in the UK is a serious condition and with places like UK Hair we are here for advice and to offer our services to make you feel better about your condition.

Looking after your hair post hair transplant

How to Look after your hair post hair transplant

It is no secret that a hair transplant is not a quick fix. It takes a lot of time, money and effort to retain your hair to its full capability with many specialist shampoos and procedures that have to be used to ensure that the hair transplant is a success.

Using good shampoos for hair growth such as Alpecin are a good way to look after your hair post hair transplant because these sorts of shampoos help stimulate hair growth, therefore, are good in this situation. These sorts of caffeine shampoos will also help thicken hair so that if the hair transplant has still left you a bit thin on top they will sort this out by giving you the volume you want and deserve!

In the short term period after getting a hair transplant to try to minimalise or even cut out the use of chemical products such as hair sprays and gels as these could be damaging to relatively new hair that is trying to grow. Wait until your hair has fully recovered naturally and any side effects such as itchiness have gone. Using products straight away could present long-term damage to your expensive hair transplant!

Another way to look after your post hair transplant is to let it breathe! By putting hats and caps on your head you aren’t allowing much oxygen to get to your hair follicles which need to be stimulated as much as possible to grow your hair out. Wearing something on your head wouldn’t necessarily stop your hair from growing but in my opinion, the results will be better if nothing is put on it!

Following these useful steps surrounding your hair transplant can help to look after it however always consult with a GP or your hair transplant specialist before doing anything to your hair transplant. They will be able to advise you best depending on how your body is reacting to the hair transplant and how well the hair is growing. Hair transplants are costly to have done and also costly to maintain afterwards so please ensure that you thoroughly read through all the information provided on various internet pages and even the NHS website.

The Challenges Associated with Hair Loss

Challenges Associated with Hair Loss

The Common Challenges Associated with Hair Loss

Hair loss can cause many psychological challenges for people. If someone knows they are going to lose their hair perhaps because of genetics or just because their hair is running thin, they can usually become paranoid about this fact and become stressed and anxious as a result. This can lead to the person taking drastic measures to ensure that they don’t fulfil their expected fate of hair loss which can lead to further stress and anxiety. These measures can be small lifestyle changes like drinking green tea every day or using caffeine shampoo to accelerate hair growth.

If you are losing your hair and are feeling self-conscious about it, there are alternative solutions out there to drinking tea and taking caffeine shampoo! If your hair loss is becoming a growing concern and you want a long-term solution you can find out whether you are suitable for a hair transplant. Although the cost may be a factor that puts you off, UK Hair Transplant Clinics offer affordable solutions in the form of monthly payment plans so that you can avoid the financial strain that often comes with hair transplants. Take part in our free online assessment to see whether a hair transplant is a right resolution for you.

Failing that, we also offer hair loss tablets which can retain existing hair and create a fuller look. As well, the tablets can help to reduce further hair loss and combat progressive balding. Take a look at our non-surgical hair loss treatments here.

If neither of the above solutions is for you, then there is always the option of embracing going bald. For some, shaving the remaining hair that is left is a great way of accepting the fact that you are going bald, it may also relieve some anxiety you have surrounding your balding. In fact, it has been said that people without hair are deemed to be more attractive than people with hair… Plus you get the benefit of not having to style it!

At the end of the day, there are a lot of factors which contribute to which decision you make, including your own personal thoughts and feelings towards hair loss. If you want to find out more information about the treatments and solutions mentioned in this blog then click here.

Can you Style Transplanted Hair?

img-ukhair-blog-styles

Can you Style Transplanted Hair?

Many people that have had hair transplants wonder if they can ever style their hair like they did back when they were 18 so it’s looking full of bounce and volume. The healing process for a hair transplant lasts for about 12 months so it is very important that the utmost care and precaution is taken with what you use on your transplanted hair in the first year.

Month 1)

For the first few weeks after the surgery, ensure you take all the medication prescribed from the doctor and when this batch of medication ends, consult the doctor about getting a haircut (if you even want one).

Month 2)

In the second month you can generally resume your normal haircut regime, whether that be every 2 weeks or every month, it shouldn’t affect the healing process of the surgery you went through.

Month 3)

This is the point where it would be considered safe to start using the styling products that you’ve had sitting in the bathroom cupboard for the last few years whilst you were saving your hard earned cash for your hair transplant. However do so with caution because everyone’s hair is different and the chemicals inside the products could react badly with your hair!

The first 3 months after a hair transplant are crucial to the whole healing process of your hair transplant. Ensure that you keep hair dryers on a low heat as this can be harmful. Always ensure that you take care of your hair by washing any bad chemicals out of it thoroughly, for example, if you have been in a pool make sure that the chlorine has been washed out or it could react badly with the hair follicles!

After the 3 month point, you should be completely fine to start styling your hair as normal so you can return to what you once looked like! Ensure that you always wash the product out afterwards however so you don’t damage your transplanted hair! After a year your transplanted hair should have fully grown out and it will be like you never lost your hair in the first place!

Looking after your hair in the sun

Looking after your hair in the sun

Looking after your hair in the sun is very important. The sun can be very damaging to hair, especially coloured hair as it is fragile and the Sun’s heat can dry it out. As the weather gets warmer it is getting more and more important that we see the risks presented to us and take precautions where necessary, after all, nobody wants hair loss, do they?

Hair treatments for before and after the sun

There are many hair treatments that can help to treat hair in the sun to give it that edge that people desire. Hair masks are a good hair treatment to use to protect your hair from the harmful UV rays that the sun transpires. This is a sort of conditioner that you leave on your hair from half an hour to even as long as overnight! The effects of the hair masks are amazing for those that want to soften their hair for those summertime Instagram uploads. Hair oils are also a good hair treatment to use by simply applying a teaspoon amount to your hair after you’ve washed it to build nutrients deep in the roots to accelerate growth and protect from the harmful rays from the sun. These oils are especially good for after sun exposure as it helps to rebuild the nutrients lost from the UV rays so that it can shine for as long as possible. All of these hair treatments lower the risk of hair loss in the future, therefore, they are essential for keeping your hair intact. At UK Hair we also offer hair transplant tablets which can prevent the loss of hair in the future and help to retain existing hair.

Covering your hair

Simply wearing a baseball cap or a fedora can help to protect your hair from the UV rays projected from the sun. This will help keep your hair intact from dryness, discolouration and fizziness and preserve your image for the evening poolside meals on that week’s all-inclusive holiday. Also sitting in the shade is a good way to cover your hair from the sun to ensure that it doesn’t cause hair loss, however, keep in mind this won’t get you that bronze tan you desire!

Looking after your hair when you leave the pool

Chlorine from pools can be quite harmful to your hair anyway, but if you put that together with sun exposure, the results can be detrimental. Hair can go frizzy and dry leading to split ends and the whole volume of your lovely locks will come to an end. This is why it is important that when you exit the pool you thoroughly wash the chlorine out of your hair before it is exposed to the sun. Most pool-sides have showers readily available next to the pool, for this reason, therefore, there’s no excuse to not do this to protect your hair from the damaging effects of chlorine which can cause hair loss if the hair is already weak!

The best actions to protecting your hair from the sun are using the hair mask conditioners the night before going out in the sun, applying the hair oils and also washing your hair after sun exposure which will decrease the risk of your hair becoming dry and frizzy. Ensure that no chlorine is left in your hair and your hair will be fine from the harmful UV rays this summer! Just remember these simple actions and you are covering yourself from the warm weather negative effects like hair loss!

After all, no one wants to lose their hair from not taking care of it properly!

If all else fails and you’re interested in hair loss solutions to contact us today.

What is the ideal beard to face ratio

beard

What is the ideal beard to face ratio?

In recent years, it has become a fashion trend to grow and maintain a beard in many cultures. We are going to be investigating what the ideal beard to face ratio is. We understand that some people have their own ideas of what the perfect beard should be but we are going to be thinking about multiple factors when discovering the perfect facial hair.

 

The Full Beard:

We can all say that The Full Beard is the master of all facial hair and is simply a pleasure to look at but is it too long for everyday life? In most accounts, we have found that people, in general, like the full beard but there are some situations where a big bushy beard just isn’t the right attire to wear. For example, if you work some restaurants, they may require you to shave your beard. This type of beard may just be a little too much hair and not enough face for the perfect ratio.

 

The Goatee:

The Goatee is a small area of beard that is gown on the chin and just below the mouth. A common matchup is the Goatee with a Musteshe, which gives your month a full cover all around it. Again, depending on how long your Goatee is, some jobs may require you to shave it off or maintain it a little more. This type of facial hair might just be on the other end of the problem, this type shows a bit too much face a with not enough hair.

 

Full Stubble:

More and more people are focusing on making sure their beard is perfect before worrying about their head hair. Full Stubble is probably one of the hardest styles to maintain and keep tidy on a day-to-day basis. However, you will most often be fine with this type of beard in most jobs. This type of facial hair could be considered the best but it does depend on how well you maintain it and what style you choose to have.

 

How you grow your beard is entirely your decision and your choice! We are simply expressing what we think is a good option the best beard to face ratio for those of us who cannot decide how to wear their facial hair. Some people have problems with growing beards, but we can make it easy with one of our expert Beard Transplant.

Why more people are turning to hair transplant surgery

hair transplant surgery

Why are more and more people turning to hair transplant surgery?

The most common type of hair-loss is male pattern baldness, which according to the NHS, affects around half of men by the age of 50. Yet the reason we say people, and not men, is because women also experience hair-loss and seek solutions. Hair-loss is a commonplace experience but it can cause a lot of upset and disruption to people’s every-day lives due to the way in which it affects people’s confidence. Therefore, it is completely understandable why more people are turning to hair transplant surgery.

Getting hair transplant surgery is becoming a lot more ‘normal’. Recently Prince Harry has been the focus of the press because he is reportedly set to undergo a hair transplant. Other celebrities such as Wayne Rooney, Chris Martin, David Beckham and Matthew McConaughey have also been rumoured to have had transplants in the past.

The increase in numbers of people turning to hair transplant surgery is because there are more clinics becoming available to them. Though hair transplants are becoming more popular this does not mean that it should be a surgery which you should take lightly. Taking the time to do your research before picking a clinic is vital in ensuring that the procedure is completed to a high standard. At UK Hair Transplant we have a team of surgeons on board who are guaranteed to deliver results and are happy to meet you for a consultation before any decisions are made.

At UK Hair Transplant Clinics we aim to suggest a treatment plan which suits your unique situation and ensures that you feel completely confident with the procedure. This is why we offer free consultations with one of our experts who will be able to advice you with the best course of action. It might end up being that you don’t actually need a transplant and one of our other treatment plans are better suited to you, for example hair growth tablets.

If you have any questions or want to book a consultation then feel free to contact us.

Can a hair transplant reduce the appearance of a large forehead?

forehead hair transplant

Could hair transplant surgery help your forehead look smaller?

It is perfectly normal for us to prefer certain facial features over others. If you are self-conscious about having a large forehead then first of all-don’t worry, you’re not alone! If you are struggling to learn to love this particular facial feature then there are plenty of beauty tips which can help to reduce the appearance of your forehead. For example, getting a fringe. Contouring can also help to create the illusion of a smaller forehead. The trick is to darken the areas that you would like less emphasis on and brighten the areas that you want more emphasis on. So, if you darken the outline of your forehead with bronzer or a contour stick it should help to make your forehead appear smaller.

Another alternative for reducing the appearance of a large forehead is a hair transplant. This is done using either Follicular unit transplantation (FUT), or Follicular unit extraction (FUE). Both procedures take place under local anesthetic, and the one which is used depends on what the surgeon decides is suitable and how many hairs need to be removed. If your desired outcome is to bring your hairline forward, then the hair follicles would be removed from another area and inserted at the front of your head thus bringing your hairline forward and reducing the size of your forehead. So in answer to the question posed in the title of this blog, yes a hair transplant can reduce the appearance of a large forehead.

Former The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE) star Maria Fowler and her husband both had a hair transplant in September 2017. Fowler has recently expressed how happy she is with the results so far, which have left her with a reduced forehead size and a better hairline. Although this may sound like it is something that you would be interested in, it is equally understandable that surgical procedures are not for everyone, and it is important to feel comfortable and confident with the process. If you want to speak to us further about what your options are, or find out more specific details about the procedure, then feel free to contact us. We’re here to help!

Tips on how to keep your hair healthy

avoid hair loss

Our simple tips on how to keep your hair healthy

Washing

It is a common misconception that over shampooing your hair can cause balding. Washing your hair simply washes out the hairs that are already dispatched from your head. Saying this, you shouldn’t over-wash your hair as it can cause it to dry out. In order to keep your hair healthy, you should figure out what works best for your hair type. Generally, washing it one to three is a good guideline to follow if you want to keep your hair healthy.

 

Drying and Styling

If you are using hair dryers then try not to direct it at your scalp as this can cause permanent damage to the hair follicles. Also, you can use protective serums before you use the heat devices in order to minimalise the damage caused. The best tip on how to keep your hair healthy is to avoid or at least reduce the use of heat styling devices on your hair. Heat damage can cause your hair to become fragile and dry, causing it to break off. Regularly trimming your hair will keep it looking and feeling healthy whilst reducing the number of split ends you have. Another helpful tip on how to keep your hair healthy is to treat your hair with coconut oil. This will keep it moisturised and looking shiny.

Healthy Lifestyle

A high level of psychological stress can cause balding in the form of Alopecia Areata. Avoiding stress is easier said than done! However, if you take some steps, such as meditation or yoga, towards looking after yourself then it can help to reduce your stress levels.

There are also plenty of other options available for you if you want to have healthy hair. For example, taking hair loss tablets will help to retain your existing hair and may even promote hair growth. For more information contact us here or telephone number.

Fighting the hair transplant taboo

Fighting all the hair transplant taboo

New hair growth products and advancements in surgical technology have resulted in getting a new head of hair becoming more ‘normal’ than ever. When you are suffering from hair loss, it often affects your personality as well as your physical appearance. Hair loss can lead to reduced confidence and self-esteem in both women and men, which in turn has an effect on one’s ability to flourish in relationships and jobs. Around 40% of the population suffer from hair loss, so if it is such a common occurrence then why is there a taboo associated with it?

What are the taboos associated with getting a hair transplant?

To start with, getting a hair transplant may suggest that you are embarrassed about the fact that you are going bald. There are often negative connotations associated with the words ‘balding’, yet there are so many factors that lead to people experiencing hair loss. Contrary to what people might think, it is not just men who experience hair loss. Women are also affected. To name just one example, stress immediately after pregnancy can cause hair loss. The sudden change in estrogen levels after a woman gives birth means that large amounts of hair can fall out at once.

Another taboo linked with hair transplants, particularly amongst men, is that it is a vanity procedure. Vanity procedures are largely linked to women, with more and more females turning to surgical procedures when it comes to their physical appearance. Yet, getting a hair transplant is not just for vanity reasons, but for self-esteem issues and improvement of the quality of life. Furthermore, it is perfectly understandable for men to want to improve their appearance.

Celebrities such as Wayne Rooney, and more recently Joe swash, have undergone hair transplant procedures. Joe Swash has been open and honest about his hair transplant procedure carried out by UK Hair Transplant Clinics, which has in turn allowed for it to become more normalised. The increased media attention has meant that is a lot more common for men to outwardly look after their appearance, and the taboo has been chipped away at so much that it barely exists anymore.

Hair transplant progression

Over the years, due to hair transplants becoming more accessible and common within the UK, the myths and taboo linked with hair transplants have been broken down and in today’s day and age, it has become perfectly normal to want to seek remedies for hair loss. It has also become a lot less complicated. If surgery is not for you, then there are other options available for you. It isn’t as scary or daunting as it may seem!

Facial Hair Loss

Facial Hair Loss

Every year in November, people all over the world hold events and raise awareness for men’s health, such as suicide and cancer. This event is called Movember and the idea is that it should be a non-shave month in which people grow out their facial hair in order to draw attention to themselves, thus raising attention to men’s health issues. Having come to the end of November, it is fitting to mention that hair loss does not just mean the hair on your head, but also on your face. It is easier for some to grow facial hair than others.

Why do people suffer with lack of facial hair?

Alopecia barbae is an autoimmune disease which results in hair to fall out in small regions of your chin. This often leaves your facial hair looking patchy and can be stressful and upsetting for some people. Other conditions such as lupus and cancer can also cause facial hair loss in men.

Why do people want more facial hair?

According to research, men with beards are more attractive to women because they appear more ‘rugged’ and ‘masculine’. So, as well as keeping you warm this winter facial hair will also prove to be more popular with the ladies! As well, because of the various different ways that your beard and moustache can be shaped and coloured, facial hair can be used to express one’s individuality and sense of style.

How do Beard Transplants work?

For those who are seeking a fuller beard, you will be happy to know that there are ways around lack of facial hair. Using a non-invasive method called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), hair follicles are taken from a donor area, which could be the back of your head or your chest. These follicles are then individually situated in the area where you are lacking hair. Depending on the desired style, the technique takes around 3-9 hours. This technique can also be used for other areas of your face, such as your eyebrows.

reasons for your hair loss - styling

7 reasons for your hair loss and how to prevent them

Your hair is your crowning glory and can make you feel put-together and confident, so it can be alarming and upsetting if it begins to fall out. There are a number of reasons for your hair loss, such as heat styling and brushing your hair too little, which are all easily preventable.

1. Heat styling

Heat is one of the main reasons why your hair can begin to fall out. We may love them, but straightening irons, curling wands, and hairdryers can all cause breakage and ultimately cause hair loss. To prevent excess heat from damaging your hair, why not purchase heating tools that have a controllable temperature, so you can lower the amount of heat that has access to your hair.

2. Styling

Hair loss can be caused by tight ponytails and hair extensions. Both put tension on the hair shaft, which in turn damages the hair follicle causing traction alopecia (hair loss due to pulling). The best way to prevent this is to let your hair down a little more and keep it trimmed.

3. Over-dyeing

When you have your hair dyed, it is exposed to a number of different chemicals that are potentially harmful to the hair. Dyeing your hair over and over again will amplify the effects and cause your hair to snap and break. Try having a break from colouring for a few months, to see if the health of your hair returns. During this time, you can also use strengthening shampoos and conditioners and hair-conditioning treatments.

4. Lifestyle

Stress and vitamin D and B12 deficiency are also common causes of hair loss. With stress, the body attempts to raise the quantity of cortisol in the body which can distort your natural hair growth cycle. Vitamins contribute to the production of keratin, so you need these for healthy hair. Changing your diet or using supplements can help.

5. Pregnancy or menopause

Both pregnancy and menopause involve a huge change in hormones, which could be one of the reasons for your hair loss. Post-pregnancy, after having glossy skin and hair during, it can seem as though your hair is falling out more. Menopause causes the hair to become thin and light-coloured. If you are concerned, talking to a doctor can help you, as they will rule out other causes and can discuss hormone levels in detail.

6. Under-brushing

This might seem like a strange one, but we naturally lose around 120 hairs a day in order for new hairs to grow, and if you don’t brush your hair often enough these hairs remain where they are. To loosen them, get a good hairbrush and comb, using the brush for when your hair is dry and the comb for when your hair is wet, to minimise hair loss from breakage.

7. Seasonal change

The weather has a bigger effect on your hair than you may think – most problems caused are to do with lack of hydration leading to dry, brittle hair. You can avoid this cause of hair loss by getting a trim before the summer months, to remove hair that is already dry, and by wetting your hair before exposing it to chlorine, to create a coating.

The Different Types of Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplant surgeries are one of the leading solutions for hair loss and have helped millions across the UK. The type of hair transplant surgery does differ depending on both the extent of the hair loss and the placement of the balding area on your head. All hair transplants involve taking healthy hair follicles from a donor area and implanting them in the balding area, to promote hair growth to cover any bald patches or receding hairlines. They have a huge celebrity following, all of whom have shared great success stories. All surgeries are different and personalised to the patient in question, so you’ll need to have a consultation with your chosen clinic to determine which type of hair transplant surgery you’ll be receiving.

Hairline surgery

Hairline surgery involved taking follicles from the donor area and implanting them into the hairline. This is perfect for those that are experiencing hair loss on the hairline, resulting in an uneven or far-back line. It’s also an option for those with an exaggerated widow’s peak, as the bald spots can easily show on short hair, or on long hair when it’s pulled back. This is a popular hair transplant surgery for women, as widows peaks are particularly noticeable when the hair is pulled back from the face, into a ponytail, for example.

Crown surgery

Crown surgery involved the implantation of healthy hair follicles into the crown of the head. Ever noticed that hair swirl on the back of a man’s head? That’s the crown and is also a common place that hair loss affects. Hair transplant surgery can have your hair looks thick and healthy again in no time, with minimal aftercare and no scarring!

Front surgery

Similar to hairline surgery, this is for those whose hairline has receded much further back than it should be. Follicles are implanted into the front section of the scalp to bring the hairline forward and thicken up the hair from the back forwards. The only difference from hairline surgery is the size of the area receiving follicles – it’s a bigger area with front hair transplant surgery.

Full head surgery

This hair transplant surgery is for those with extensive hair loss. It refers to hair loss all over the head, instead of in one particular area, and so the recipient area is considerably larger than with other types of hair transplant surgeries. This comes with a higher cost, but it’s definitely worth it for a full head of thick, luscious locks!

Reasons to be careful when choosing a hair transplant clinic

choosing a hair transplant clinic

Reasons to be careful when choosing a hair transplant clinic.

Hair transplants are great procedures that can transform both the look of your hair and your self-esteem. Most transplants are hugely successful, with celebrities praising their effects. But what happens when the transplant doesn’t work? Choosing a good hair transplant clinic is vital when having a procedure done. Luckily you don’t need to look any further because you’ve found the UK number one Hair transplant clinic.

1. Grafts are incorrectly placed.

Hair grafts are very delicate and placing them can be very difficult. It takes a very long time to acquire the skills and experience needed to place hair grafts correctly. You must choose a clinic that has expert surgeons that have the right skills. For a great hair transplant experience you need the best surgeons.

2. Incorrect donor grafts.

Donor grafts are always best taken from the head. These give a more natural appearance and limit the risk of the transplant failing. Some surgeons will take donor grafts from other parts of your body or, in some cases, from another person – this is a reason that your transplant may fail.

3. Are you a suitable candidate?

Other factors that can affect the outcome of your hair transplant are to do with you as the client. Some people are not suitable for hair transplants for a range of factors. Firstly, if you have a lot hair loss in one area itis not suitable for a transplant. This is because there wouldn’t be enough donor follicles to cover the whole area. Many do not know that hair will no longer grow from the area that the donor follicles are removed from.This means there are only so many areas that a surgeon can take from before the existing hair begins to look thin.

If a client has alopecia, hair transplants are not an effective treatment. This because transplanted hair can be affected by hair loss in the future. Also, if your hair loss is the result of any medical treatments, like chemotherapy, hair loss will not be effective. Lastly, if you have thinning hair but it is still reasonably dense, hair transplants may not work for you. This is because there needs to be enough space to insert the new follicles, and inserting them into a denser area may cause an existing follicle to be pushed out. This goes against why you have your procedure and you may end up losing even more hair.

Here to help.

Here at UK hair transplant clinics understand that some of the above points can be scary. We can assure you that we only use the best resources.

The evolution and development of Hair transplant procedures

development of hair transplant

The Evolution and Development of Hair Transplant Procedures

The Development of hair transplant procedures has evolved considerably since their conception. From the 1950s onwards, the only hair transplant technique available was standard punch grafting, which was problematic for a number of different reasons – the main one being that the result was much less than natural. By the late 1980s, a new technique had become the standard – mini-micro grafting. Again, the results weren’t very natural looking and patients were left feeling discouraged. Fast forward to the mid-1990s, and today’s FUT technique hits the market.

Standard punch grafting-

Hair transplant procedures in the 1950s onwards were vastly different than their modern replacements. Standard punch grafting involved taking large grafts the size of a pencil eraser containing around 25 hairs. These were then implanted in the area of hair loss – unfortunately, this technique left the donor area scarred in a checkerboard pattern, which was traumatic for patients. Also, due to the gaps left between the grafts, multiple procedures were required to try and fill them. Many patients were so dejected by the initial results that they decided not to complete the treatment, and thus still live with the unfinished results today. Even if patients did go full course, they were left with unnatural looking results, as hair loss progressed and moved away from the grafted areas.

Mini-micro grafting-

Thankfully, hair transplant procedures developed to include mini-micro grafting. This technique used smaller graft sizes of around 2-4 hairs, and only small slit incisions were made on the recipient area. This meant less trauma and scarring, and a larger number of grafts were able to be placed in one session. Strip harvesting was also created, which reduced scarring in the donor area and got rid of that awful checkerboard pattern.

Follicular unit transplantation-

Mini-micro grafting eventually made way to the hair transplant procedures we know and love – FUT. Grafts became even smaller, now known as follicular unit grafts with groups of 1-4 hairs. This meant that the grafts were able to be placed right next to each other in the recipient area, allowing for a natural and believable look. This is reflected today, as hair transplants now look so natural that nobody can tell when a friend, family member or popular celebrity has had one! This technique allowed physicians to treat new areas, such as the eyebrows and beards, which they weren’t able to before. The possibilities for hair transplants are now endless!

What is Scalp Micropigmentation and how does it work?

Sadly, hair loss is a reality for thousands of people in the U.K. It can have a huge impact on someone’s confidence and self-esteem.

From a hair transplant to protein supplements – whether you are looking for a permanent or temporary solution, there’s something out there for you.

One of the solutions we offer at UK Hair Transplant Clinics is Scalp Micropigmentation. This is essentially small tattoos that replicate the appearance of real hair follicles. The pigment is inserted with a needle within the dermal layer of the skin. These tiny pockets which help to imitate the appearance of individual follicles. Scalp micropigmentation can be very flexible and can be tailored to each individual person.

A client will be able to choose the:

Scalp Micropigmentation – Before & After.

Scalp micropigmentation is a permanent solution to hair loss and only requires a small touch up in some cases. There will be a detailed consultation prior to the treatment. This allows you to discuss your needs and decide if micropigmentation is the right option for you. Treatments can usually take 2 or 3 sessions, and there is no recovery period. This means you can return to your regular life quickly. It is also a great solution for those that want to cover scars, alopecia or blemishes. This is because it can hide scar tissue or mimic hair in the case of alopecia.

Scalp micropigmentation will only benefit those with very little or no hair at all growing on their scalp. The micro pigments will not mimic strands of hair, nor will it help your hair to grow. It merely mimic hair follicles, to looking like a freshly shaven head.

If you are interested in having scalp micropigmentation carried out then we would advise that you attend one of our free consultations. This will allow us to assess whether you are a suitable candidate. We hold these consultations at hair loss clinics across the UK.

The difference between male and female pattern baldness

The difference between male and female pattern baldness

[ezcol_1half]

Hair loss is a very real problem which affects millions of men and women in the U.K. It can often be an embarrassing subject and can diminish the self-confidence of sufferers. Despite the fact that many associate pattern baldness more with the male gender than with women, female pattern baldness is also a big problem for many. There are subtle differences, however, between male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness.

Hair loss is caused by a rise in DHT (Dihydrltestosterone) which causes hair follicles to shrivel and die, causing existing hairs to fall out of the scalp and preventing the growth of new ones in both genders. The main differences that can be observed between male and female pattern baldness are the symptoms and signs.

[/ezcol_1half]

[ezcol_1half_end]shutterstock_37749670[/ezcol_1half_end]

Men’s Trends

For men, pattern baldness is very common as you progress towards old age. Many allow their hair to follow its natural progression – however, if male pattern baldness occurs when the man is quite young, then a hair transplant is often a great option to give the scalp a new lease of life. Male pattern baldness is punctuated by a receding hairline and thinning hair around the crown. The hair loss will continually progress from the front of the head to the back, often with the hair on the sides of the head remaining intact, as these areas are less affected by fluctuating levels of DHT. Eventually, the entire top portion of the head will be completely bald.

[ezcol_1half]

Female Pattern Baldness[/ezcol_1half]

[ezcol_1half_end]

Women’s Trends

Female pattern baldness begins with thinning hair across the central area of the scalp. Generally, if left untreated, it will appear as if the parting of the hair becomes progressively wider as DHT takes effect on the hair follicles there. While most women’s full heads of hair remain intact, some suffer from frontal fibrosing alopecia due to female pattern baldness. A small number of women experience baldness at the top of their head, much like the baldness experienced by men during male pattern baldness.

[/ezcol_1half_end]

Although most men and women follow these examples of male and female pattern baldness, it can occur differently in each individual. There are many solutions available if you are suffering from hair loss, ranging from temporary to permanent. For a temporary fix, hair loss concealers are a great way to cover up thinning areas, or you could use an attractive headscarf. For a more permanent solution, hair transplants boast phenomenal results and success rates.

APG Benefits (Advanced Protein Growth)

[rev_slider nonsurgical]

Discussing APG benefits and why we use them!

When experiencing hair loss, there are many different solutions to consider, which can become quite overwhelming when trying to make a choice. APG stands for advanced protein growth, which involves a hair growth supplement, best applied to hair following an FUE hair transplant. It has many different benefits, speeding up hair regrowth following a transplant and improving the appearance and thickness of the hair.

Some benefits include the following:

[ezcol_1half]

Faster growth

One of the most tempting APG benefits is the faster regrowth. After a transplant, your hair can take up to 18 months to grow back completely, which can be torture for the impatient! With AFR, a hair growth supplement, patients can achieve full regrowth in 6 months – cutting regrowth time by two-thirds!

Less shock loss

Shock loss is the loss of natural hair following a hair transplant – it is temporary, and can result in the hair looking slightly thinner immediately following a transplant. One of the APG benefits is that it reduces the likelihood of this occurring.

[/ezcol_1half]

[ezcol_1half_end]apg benefits faster growth[/ezcol_1half_end]

[ezcol_1half]

apg benefits thicker hair[/ezcol_1half]

[ezcol_1half_end]

Thicker hair

When your transplanted hair grows back after your FUE or FUT transplant, it will be thick and full – to improve these results even further, use APG treatments like AFR. Using the supplement regularly can improve the thickness of transplanted hair by up to 98%, and allow you to really reap the APG benefits.

Improves existing hair

Using AFR doesn’t only improve the appearance of your transplanted hair – your existing natural hair can benefit too. It can significantly slow hair loss from your existing strands, and improve the overall thickness. So while you wait for your transplanted hair to grow in, your existing hair can improve its appearance in the meantime.
[/ezcol_1half_end]

Using AFR

AFR is an easy way to experience APG benefits – it comes in the form of whey protein, which can be added to water or milk and enjoyed following a workout or at the end of a long day. Not only will it improve the growth of your hair, it will protect your muscles. To promote hair growth, make sure you get enough nutrients in your diet – a low nutrient content in your diet can leave your transplanted hair struggling to grow quickly. You should also remove any unhealthy additives from your shampoos and conditioners, as only mild products promote growth by creating a neutral pH environment on your scalp. There are plenty of hair loss shampoos and conditioners on the market, which is suitable for use following an FUE or FUT transplant.

Hair cloning: is it the new hair transplant?

hair cloning hair transplant

Hair cloning: is it the new hair transplant?

The technique of hair cloning is being increasingly funded and researched for the treatment of balding and hair loss in adults. Some experts even predict that, by the time it is available to the public, it will eclipse hair transplants altogether, and more and more people will choose it as the better alternative. Hair cloning could be the easier, safer way to a fuller and thicker head of hair, once any difficulties of development are solved.

What is hair cloning?

[ezcol_1half]

The act of cloning hair is when healthy hair follicles are extracted from the patient and then cultivated in vitro to produce hundreds more, which will then be replaced in the scalp of the patient and begin to grow normally. The concept of ‘hair cloning’ however, is a little different to this, and is better described as hair multiplication. The surgeon removed healthy follicles from the patient’s scalp and then implants them straight back in, where they will regenerate. The germinative cells at the base of the hair should generate a new follicle which will begin to produce hair on its own.

Unfortunately, there has been a number of problems with this method during the development process – it has been found that only a small number of germinative cells can be extracted with each piece of hair, which means that it’s difficult for them to generate a new healthy follicle. Researchers are constantly working to find solutions and bring the concept of hair cloning to clinics across the UK, so we can expect that it will become a reality sooner rather than later, regardless of the hurdles still to be overcome.

[/ezcol_1half]

[ezcol_1half_end]

[/ezcol_1half_end]

What are the advantages?

Once the process of hair cloning is perfected, there will be very little side effects, unlike the usage of enzyme inhibitors which can produce side effects of dizziness and rashes. It also won’t leave scarring or require much of a recovery period, unlike hair transplants. The procedure is relatively short, also, which means that there is little time waiting around and less risk of complications due to the ease of the procedure. Finally, the results of hair cloning are permanent if the procedure is successful, so no repeat procedures are required and you can get on with life with a fuller, thicker head of hair which is there to stay.

 

What’s happened in the world of hair transplants?

What’s happened in the world of hair transplants?

The latest news in the world of hair transplants is yet another television star has undergone therapy and taken the plunge into having a hair transplant. Gogglebox star Chris Steed has invested and had a very successful hair transplant recently.

Hair loss wasn’t a new issue for Chris as he has been suffering from hair loss since he was just 18 years old. Chris decided that he would start to use toupees and wigs as a way of hiding his hair loss. After trying hair thickening treatments Chris thought the only way of hiding his hair would be through wearing false hair pieces. Until recently this had worked out ok for him but he decided after an embarrassing incident in which he lost his wig he was going to look into the possibilities of hair transplant therapy.

[ezcol_1half]

Being a hairdresser it was quite upsetting for Chris having to hide his own hair whilst making others look fabulous. The Brighton hairdresser now no longer has to hide his hair after two treatments he is able to show off his fabulous locks and call them his own.

A quote from Chris regarding his treatment he stated “I am so pleased with the results and I do feel 10 years younger. I had significant baldness around my crown and this new procedure has filled in all those gaps”.

He first had treatment around the hairline specifically and at the front of the scalp about five years ago and then followed this up with further treatment more recently.

Brow Transplants In The UK

brow transplant uk

Everything you need to know about Brow transplants in the UK

You may have only considered hair transplants as a solution for the lack of hair on your head – however, brow transplants are becoming more and more popular as bushier brows take over the thin, sparse eyebrow trend of the 90s. Eyebrow transplants in the UK can give you the thick and full eyebrows that you want – what’s more, they’ll be permanent and consist of your real hair. Unlike tattoos or microblading, brow transplants will give you real brows, instead of just the appearance of them. Prices start at around £3000.

Initially, brow transplants in the UK were introduced to help those that lost hair due to illness – but, as word spread, women with naturally thin or overplucked brows began turning to eyebrow transplants as a solution. Brow transplants involve taking hair from an area of your head, usually at the bottom of the scalp or behind the ear, and discreetly implanting this hair into your brow. Your brows will take on your chosen shape and be thick and full. Eyebrow transplants in the UK involve minimally invasive treatment and do not result in any scarring, meaning there are no telltale signs that a procedure has even taken place once the hairs have fully regrown. All procedures are done under local anaesthetics and patients do not experience any pain during.

Don’t be expecting instantly picture-perfect brows – following your eyebrow transplant, your eyebrows will scab over and the area may be swollen and tender. It’s recommended that you bring along any hats or headscarves that you may be able to use to cover your brows after the treatment. These scabs will begin to fall off after about a week – some hairs may fall off too, but this is not a cause for concern, as the root will still be securely embedded. After around six to eight months, all hairs will have grown back to give patients a thick, fashionable brow look that is not only permanent but looks completely natural.

It is important that patients do not engage in any vigorous activity following the brow transplant, and that only specially prescribed shampoo is used on the scalp. It is also recommended that, after the procedure, patients sleep on two or more pillows, and apply ice to the brow area to reduce swelling. Eyebrow transplants in the UK give women confidence and give them the brows they’ve always wanted. The result is thick, glossy brows that will rival today’s supermodels.

David Beckhams Beard Transplant

Beard Transplant

David Beckham, arguably one of the most stylish men in the world, has opted for a beard transplant

As we are a generation who are all about our self-image, men have also become just a conscious as woman when it comes to looks and following the latest trend. The newest trend for men is to have facial hair for a more ‘rugged’ look. This is shown by many male celebrities such as Ryan Reynolds, Ben Affleck and Scott Disick who have been sporting the ‘full’ beard look. Because of this new fashion, many men are now growing their facial hair to achieve this more masculine look.

However, some celebrities such as David Beckham have gone the extra mile and have had a ‘beard transplant’. Now 45% of men are who are naturally trying to achieve this look have found that their beards are patchy or that they are unable to get the ‘full’ look and have also gone down the ‘beard transplant’ route.

David Beckham admired for his facial hair.

Many women now say that men with facial hair are more attractive than clean shaven men, when previously facial hair was seen as unattractive. 53% off men now say that they feel more attractive to women when they have facial hair. Because of this, the demand for ‘beard transplants’ in the UK has increased over the past six years from 4,500 in 2012 to now over 6,000. The number of beard transplants performed has risen from being just 1.5 per cent of all hair restoration procedures undertaken internationally in 2012 to 3.7 per cent in 2014. This is due to a change of fashion from celebrities and other men wanting to follow to them.

Beard transplants are also used to cover up any Trauma, Scarring from surgery and Radiation.

The transplant procedure is carried out by taking a strip of hair from the back of the scalp and transplanted into patches of thinner areas of the beard and sideburns. A beard transplant is more challenging than a normal hair transplant and this is because there are a lot more sensory nerves on the face than there are on the scalp. This procedure takes roughly a day to do and costs roughly £3,000 but is well worth the time and money when you have achieved the ‘full bearded’ look.

People who have undergone this procedure have found that the results have been fantastic and well worth it! There are many reasons why men go ahead with the transplant; the main reason is that people are a lot more conscious of looks and a patchy beard isn’t a good look. Men also want to follow the latest trends and a full beard is the look to have now. It has also been found that woman is more likely to find a man with facial hair more attractive than a man that has a clean shaven face. This makes many men lack self-esteem which drives them to make the decision to get a beard transplant. If you need any further information please contact us here

One Of The Most Effective Hair Loss Solutions

Most effective hair loss solution

One Of The Most Effective Hair Loss Solutions

Hair loss is one of the most dreaded conditions around the world. People go to extreme lengths to ensure their hair is perfect. Hair transplants are the most popular methods of combating hair loss. If you’ve recently noticed a gradually receding hairline or a bald patch forming amidst your head, then it’s probably time you tried a variety of effective hair loss solutions. UK hair is one of the leading hair transplant clinics in Europe. Here, we use a variety of effective hair loss solution techniques to ensure your diminishing hair is restored.

If you’re suffering from thin hair, UK hair offers the solution in form of an effective dose of Finasteride tablets. These tablets work by thickening the hair as well as slowing down the rate of hair loss among patients. However, there are alternative hair loss solutions for people whose conditions are advanced. Accelerated Follicular System (AFR) is the most recent hair transplant technology in the world. This technology was originally launched in the USA but is now offered in the UK Hair transplant Clinic. AFR guarantees a remarkable improvement in hair growth. About 90% of the patients who undergo this treatment achieve impressive results in only six months. In addition, there’s a 90% decrease in shock loss.

Many people, including celebrities, have received hair transplant procedures that have dramatically changed their lives. One such celebrity is Joe Swash. His change was especially remarkable because most of his hair had fallen out before he decided to get the hair transplant. When the transplant was over, his hair was thicker. His friends and loved ones even thought he looked younger. Numerous patients who’ve gone through this procedure can attest to its incredible effectiveness. UK hair strives to ensure that you look good by providing you with the most advanced hair loss solutions.

In past years, hair transplant surgeries left patients with an unattractive dolls hair effect. This is because an archaic plug procedure was used for surgery. Instead of individual hair follicles being implanted, about 15 follicles were implanted at a time. This made it quite obvious when you received a hair transplant. Modern procedures, however, ensure that you look completely natural after the transplant. It’s not remotely possible for anyone to detect that you received hair treatment. All hair transplant techniques are performed using a local anesthetic and have mild discomfort. Treatment time varies from a few hours to around 10 hours, depending on the extent of hair loss.

UK hair has made its hair loss solutions quite affordable by offering treatments which cost from ₤2500 to ₤7500 each. You therefore get to save around ₤1000 – ₤2000 depending on the treatment. The cost solely depends on the number of hair follicles. The results of the transplant are bound to transform your look and confidence for life, making it an excellent investment for those experiencing hair loss.

Man Claims Hair Transplant increased his Tinder Dating App Matches by 75%!

Hair transplants can really help you to rebuild self confidence, especially if your hair starts to thin rather early on. As reported in The Mirror recently a man has had a hair transplant and he has seen a huge increase of matches on his Tinder profile. He has seen a 75% increase in matches since his hair transplant. He has gone from seeing 116 matches from women to 203 matches since having a full head of hair. He set up 2 Tinder profiles. One with a picture of him with a receding hairline and one with a full head of hair. Both had a similar message on the profiles.

He believed that “hair transplants were for older men or rich footballers.” However it got to the point where his “thinning hair was really affecting” his self-esteem and confidence, surgery then become an option he was seriously considering.

He isn’t surprised that women are more interested in men with a fuller head of hair. He compares it to how “men may choose blondes over brunettes”.

He conducted his experiment over 10 days. It follows statistics from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons that reveal the number of men undergoing plastic surgery has more than doubled in the past decade, rising from 2,440 in 2005 to 4,614 in 2015.

Dr Bessam Farjo, who carried out the surgery at his Manchester-based clinic, is keen to help remove any stigma surrounding hair transplants in younger men. Removing beliefs similar to the patients that hair transplants are only for older men and footballers. He said: “Hair transplants are often associated with 50-something men who want to recapture their youth and look good as they age.

“Of course, this may be the case for many patients, but we’re seeing a steady increase in younger men – often in their late 20s – coming forward to find out more.”

Hair transplants are becoming ever more popular with younger men and this recent small experiment shows that it can help boost your confidence and self-esteem, as well as make you more popular with the opposite sex. Don’t be put off by the stigma that is attached to hair transplants. Consider one for yourself today.
